What's on location at Beddgelert Snowdonia

What you can expect to enjoy

As you cross the bridge and enter Beddgelert Snowdonia, the tranquillity of the location wraps around you. This picturesque glade within the 700-hectare wider forest has a mix of deciduous and evergreen trees. The River Colwyn cuts through the forest at the edge of the location and creating another boundary is the Welsh Highland Railway, with a tiny station where you can hop on a steam train. Beneath the trees are Silver Birch and Golden Oak cabins, and a Golden Oak Hideaway, as well as the Forest Retreat and Bakehouse.

Cycle hire Enjoy the freedom of two wheels

We have local bike hire so that you don't have to worry about bringing your own. Beddgelert Bikes is just a short distance from our location and there are options for everyone, including child bikes, child seats and tag-alongs.

The Welsh Highland Railway line Hop on a steam train

One of the most wonderful aspects of Snowdonia National Park holidays is the Welsh Highland Railway line which wends its way through the area. Every so often you will hear a tell-tale whistle and catch glimpses of a vintage train leaving a cloud of steam in its wake. The cabin location has its own station too, which connects to the two coastal towns of Caernarvon and Porthmadog, as well as taking you the short hop up to the village of Beddgelert. 

Trails and walks Explore the Welsh countryside

Beddgelert Snowdonia opens out onto 700 hectares of forest, with many enjoyable walking trails. Take the route to Llyn Llywelyn, a secluded lake with dramatic views of the surrounding mountains. Climb Moel Hebog (bare hill of the hawk) for a more strenuous day out, or take the Lon Gwyrfai Path for an enjoyable 30-minute walk into the village of Beddgelert, complete with breath-taking views along the way.
